Firm Overview

Chapter 7 bankruptcy, sometimes called a "straight" or "fresh start" bankruptcy is a liquidation proceeding. The debtor turns over all non-exempt property to the bankruptcy trustee who then converts it to cash for distribution to the creditors. The debtor receives a discharge of all dischargeable debts usually within four months (usually just over 90 days). In the vast majority of cases the debtor has no assets that he would lose so Chapter 7 will give that person a relatively quick "fresh start".

One of the main purposes of Bankruptcy Law is to give a person, who is deeply burdened with debt, a fresh start by wiping out his or her debts.
